This is a must visit, if not to see the beautiful Koalas being cared for, but to support the cause. There is no charge to get in, but donations are greatly appreciated.

Living in this area it's easy to take koalas for granted. The Koala Hospital does magnificent work and their research helps less fortunate areas. Please remember to leave a donation.

The PMQ Koala Hospital is a great place to visit. We live in Port Macquarie and we have visited numerous times. They are having their annual open day on Easter Saturday. We have adopted a koala and are given details of this adopted koala. It is not expensive to adopt and is a great present for anyone who loves animals.

Interesting place, with a lot of lovely Koalas. It is very exciting to see how the Australian people care about their wild life animals, and the Koala hospital is one of a kind.

The only koala hospital in the world and it is free for you to take the family along. If you go along at 3pm any day, you can see the koalas being fed and learn all about these unique animals. You need luck to see them in the wild,so this is your chance to get up close and enjoy. Next... More

Every trip to Port Macquarie includes several walks up to the Koala Hospital...just an amazing, interesting facility. Very dedicated staff and volunteers..great place for pictures as well and often will see Koalas in the wild just outside of the hospital compound that protects the Koalas that are being treated or are permanent residents.

The koala hospital is a great spot to visit. It was recommended to me by a friend who was there a couple of months ago. The lady who did the 3pm guided tour was absolutely fantastic. So much knowledge and gave enough information to be interesting but not boring! They never asked for donations but don't charge for entry. Obviously... More
